Pros

There are some very intelligent and hard working employees working for Jacobs.

The Human Resource Department is terribly mis-managed, and unorganized. The HRBP's seem over worked and burnt out. There seems to be a pattern

Advice to Management

Corporate should be managing HR in a more shared services type manner!
